BEWARE OF MIS-SELLING GOING ON:
A GOOD LAW HAS NOW BEEN PASSED TO PROTECT BIKERS FROM BUYING PRODUCTS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN OFFICIALLY TESTED.
ALL MOTORCYCLE CLOTHING MUST NOW HAVE A FULL CE APPROVAL (THIS MEANS THE ENTIRE GARMENT NOT JUST THE ARMOUR).
THERE SHOULD BE A CE LABEL SEWN INTO THE INSIDE OF THE GARMENT (IMAGE SHOWN BELOW) THIS IS A FABRIC LABEL NOT CARD.
WITHOUT THIS LABEL A GARMENT SHOULD NOT BE SOLD AS MOTORCYCLE PROTECTION CLOTHING
  UNFORTUNATELY, SOME COMPANIES ARE NOT ADHERING TO THIS.

Important information regarding armour.
It is very important to wear armour with these products, not just to help protect your bones but also to reduce the impact of the bone against the fabric in the key areas. The fabric is not designed to withstand impact, in the key areas, without armour.
Important information regarding our promotional videos.
The extreme videos shown with belt sanders and saws on our products are all done on Maximite(R) lined products not Aramid. The Aramid jeans are shown in the tug of war and the drag along the  road. The products are not designed for these extreme uses and so the videos are purely done for promotion and entertainment. Therefore none of these abuses are to be repeated as they are done in controlled conditions
Our associate fabric and product factories supply the armed forces around the world.
Roadskin is a British Motorcycle clothing brand owned by Paranoid Clothing Company Ltd, whose associate factories supply the Armed forces, Special forces, Fire and rescue services and Industry world-wide with Abrasion resistant fabrics and products, so utilizing their state of the art machinery and some of the most knowledgeable and innovative minds in the industry today for it’s Motorcycle products.
We use two different fabrics to line our jeans and products, one is a para-aramid fabric and the other is made from a completely different fibre. The para-aramid fabric we use is Du Pont™ Kevlar® and the other fabrics we use is called Maximite(R).
“DuPont™ and Kevlar® are trademarks or registered Trade Marks of E.I.du Pont de Nemours and Company”.
Part Lined Jean Statement
Due to results from our own tests to simulate Motorway use, where the strength of the whole trouser holding together was tested rather than certain individual patches we are no longer producing purely part-lined Jeans.
We only make Fully lined Jeans and fully reinforced jeans , Fully lined means that the abrasion resistance lining is applied inside the Denim and fully reinforced means that the abrasion resistant fibre is cleverly woven to the inside of the denim fabric and so making a single skin for a  lighter cooler feel.
Reason for not using part lined only Jeans.
All Part lined jeans tested, from the most expensive to the cheapest, all pulled apart at the denim only part, which proved to us that the old theory that you are only as strong as your weakest link is true. In our opinion, based on our tests, even if the patches were made from English Oak it does not help if the Jean potentially rips apart on impact and be half way down the road with your back side bare to the road.
This is the personal opinion of some of the most experienced personal protection experts and also technical fabric engineers around the world. However sales and marketing companies selling part lined Jeans don`t agree.
Although it is very important to point out that there is never any guarantee of a product holding together or ever guaranteeing a person’s safety or any protection from any injury, but at least we can try and make sure as best we can  by not selling unreinforced patches.
Tips on How to Maintain the Water Resistance
A water resistant membrane has been added to certain products on the inside of the denim or fabric.
It is important to point out that the membrane is sewn through to make the garment and so needs to be maintained by the customer.
Every time the garment is washed or gets wet it must be sprayed with Fabsil Universal to back the membrane up and stop water getting in through the stitching. So the water resistance is subject to customer maintenance and not the responsibility of Roadskin.
The products always need to be washed cold, 20 degrees,  if not , the cotton or denim outer will deteriorate over time and the cotton or denim seams will give way as hot washing breaks down the integrity of cotton (that`s why jeans often get strands on the legs as people are not told this) and then the lining may pull away.
If you expose the aramid to direct sunlight on the line the UV can break aramid down, so drip dry only and don`t turn the Jeans inside out.
 THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STAB-PROOF & ANTI ABRASION:
Clearly the Para-aramid and other anti-abrasion fabrics used in our products are designed to be cut by scissors and or heavy pressure from a knife so they can be made into garments whilst still giving a good degree of impact and abrasion resistance.
Scissors and heavy hand pressured Stanley knives have an extreme pounds per square inch, far above that in which one would normally encounter in an accident ,hence these implements can even cut through EN13595 cloth to make garments.
The videos on our products are purely intended to show some degree of abrasion or tear resistance. Our products are NOT designed to be stab proof or bullet proof. Our products are not indestructible, impervious or impregnable.
If you are looking for some assurance of abrasion ability (although they will have no guarantee of protection) you need to look for products with an EN13595 pass as per our Beast and Titanite(R) products. But even an EN13595 pass is not a 100% guarantee of no injury or definite protection as there are too many variables in life and on the road to guarantee anything but that we will do our best.
Important:
If a product is stated clearly to have a FULL CE approval
it is sold as Motorcycle Protective wear.
If a product does NOT state a FULL CE approval and only
material test passes then it is sold as Durable Leisurewear.
NOT as Motorcycle protection wear.
Disclaimer
We do not and will not in any way shape or form guarantee protection from injury and or damage to a customer’s body when wearing our products, we make no claims with regards to physical protection or any type of protection what so ever. The CE pren17092 passed products and En13595 material passed products show an independent assessment of the ability of our products but they do not guarantee protection as life and the road is too unpredictable to give any assurances or guarantees.
If you require absolute assurance and or a guarantee of protection, do not purchase our products.
No product can guarantee protection against injury and doing so gives a false sense of security that is the last thing a Bikers needs.
We just make the best products we can.
IT IS SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WEARER TO MAKE SURE THE GARMENT FITS THEM CORRECTLY AND SAFELY AND IS THEREFORE FIT FOR PURPOSE.

Issued by Paranoid clothing co ltd   in accordance with the requirements of the EC Personal Protective Equipment Regulation 2016/425. These  jeans  are  an  item  of  Motorcyclists’  Personal  Protective  Equipment  (PPE).  This  product conforms  to  the  technical  specification  “prEN  17092-1:2017  –  Protective  garments  for  motorcycle riders (February 2017)” which has been deemed to satisfy the Basic Health and Safety requirements of the PPE Regulation 2016/425.
EU type examination has been conducted and certification issued by   SATRA Technology Europe Ltd, Bracetown Business Park  Clonee, D15 YN2P, Ireland (Notified body 2777).
Performance levels defined in prEN 17092-1:2017 (February 2017) Provisional  European  Standard  prEN  1709-1:2017  (February  2017)  defines  five  classifications  of motorcyclists’ clothing these are
  • prEN 17092-2:2017  (February  2017)  —  Class  AAA    The  highest  level  of  protection, against  the  highest  level  of  risks.  Some common examples are:  one-piece or two-piece suits. These garments are likely to have severe and limiting ergonomic, weight and thermal penalties, which some riders will not find acceptable for their specific riding activities.
  • prEN 17092-3:2017  (February  2017)  —  Class  AA    The  second  highest  level  of protection, against the risks of the greatest diversity of riding activities. Some common examples  are:  garments  designed  to  be  worn  by  themselves  or  to  be  worn  over  other  clothing.  These garments are expected to have lower ergonomic and weight penalties than Class AAA garments and some riders will not find these penalties acceptable for their specific riding activities.
  • prEN 17092-4:2017 (February 2017) — Class A garments. The third highest level of protection. Some common examples are: garments, designed to be worn by them self or to be worn over other clothing by riders in extremely hot environments. Class A garments are expected to have the least ergonomic and weight penalties.
prEN 17092-5:2017 (February 2017) — Class B garments. This class is for specialized garments,  designed  to  provide  the  equivalent  abrasion  protection  of  Class  A  garments  but  without  the inclusion of impact protectors. Some common examples  are: modular  garments suitable to  be  combined with other garments providing impact protection. Class B garments do not offer impact protection and it is recommended that they be worn with, at least, EN 1621-1 shoulder and elbow  impact protectors, in the case of a jacket, or EN 1621-1
  • knee impact protectors, in the case of trousers, installed in the garment, if it is designed to accept them or in another form, in order to offer complete minimum protection.
  • prEN 17092-6:2017 (February 2017) — Class C garments. This class is for specialized non-shell garments, designed  only  to  hold  one  or  more  impact  protectors  in  place,  either  as  an undergarment  or  as  an  over-garment.  Class  C  garments  are  designed  to  provide  impact protection for areas covered by the impact protector(s) and they do not offer complete minimum  abrasion and impact protection.
The official pictogram (see examples) denotes the overall classification achieved by the garment and number and year of the standard.
Construction of this product
This  garment  is  constructed  from  materials  which  are  abrasion,  tear  and  burst  resistant.  No substances known to be harmful to human health have been used in the construction of this garment.
Protection provided by this garment
This clothing is designed to combat the hazards encountered during normal riding on a motorcycle and when the rider is involved in a road traffic accident. The clothing is designed and constructed so that it should remain in place on the wearer, and reasonably intact on impact with the road surface;
thus  it  should  usually  prevent  any  skin  contact  with  the  road  and  therefore  minimise  mechanical impact  injuries  to  the  rider.  This clothing cannot provide  protection  from  more  serious  injuries, although it may assist in reducing the severity of some such injuries.
Hazards against which some protection is provided
  • Reduction in the severity of contusions and fractures, with the prevention of some fractures and joint damage.
  • Prevention of  most  laceration  and  abrasion  injuries  that  occur  when  a  rider  slides  on  the  road surface after falling off.
  • Reduction in the severity (or prevention) of muscle stripping and degloving injuries to the lower leg.
  • Likely prevention of contamination of open fractures by road dirt.
Hazards against which this garment cannot provide protection
  • Massive penetrating injuries on parts of the body.
  • High energy impacts on the chest or abdomen, and severe bending forces such as when the torso
  • Severe bending,  crushing  and  torsional  forces  which  occur  if the  leg  becomes  trapped between the motorcycle and another vehicles.
  • Strikes against stationary objects.
Whilst certain types and levels of accident protection can be provided by clothing, protection against all hazards is impossible.
Note: The degree of risk or hazard that a motorcyclist will face is closely linked to the type of riding and the nature  of  the  accident.  Riders are cautioned to carefully choose motorcyclists’ protective garments that match their riding activity and risks. Other garments or garment combinations certified according  to  the  series  of  standards  prEN  17092  Parts  1  –  6:2017  may  provide  more  appropriate protection than this garment but there may be weight or ergonomic (e.g. range of motion restrictions) or heat stress penalties associated with their use, that may be unacceptable for some riders. So far as possible,  design  and  construction  to  prevent  road  impact  injury  takes  precedence  over  other requirements, unless this would, in itself, lead to an increased risk of an accident.
Using this garment for the first time
In  order  to  benefit  fully  from  the  protection  offered  by  these  jeans,  you  should  ensure  that  it  fits according to the following criteria:
  • That the main fly zip closure is securely fastened and the stirrups are placed under the foot. It should not be possible to pull the ankles of the jeans up the  lower legs by more than  10 (ten)centimetres. A greater movement may expose skin to abrasion in an accident. If it is not possible to obtain a secure fit, an alternative size of jeans may be required.
  • That no discomfort is caused by the jeans when in the normal, usual riding position adopted by the wearer, and that you are able to easily reach and operate the controls of your motorcycle. (Please note, however, that you should allow at least 10 hours of regular wear for the jeans to “break in”  and  become  fully  comfortable,  and  this  should  be  taken  into  account  when  first assessing the fit of your motorcyclists’ PPE.)
  • There should  not  be  additional,  excessive  surplus  of  material  –  the  garment  fitting  snugly  yet comfortably  over  the  clothing  normally  chosen  for  wear  under  motorcycling    This would normally be one or two thin, insulating or perspiration-wicking layers as required.
IMPACT PROTECTORS
Jeans are fitted with Smoothways Hip and Knee Memory foam protectors
Impact protectors should be sited over the areas they are designed to protect, as follows:
  • HIP: symmetrically  on  the  hip    Ensure  the  pad  is  high  enough  to  cover  the  top  of  the  hip bone. Insert into the lining pocket with the convex face outwards and secure the Velcro fastening.
  • KNEE &  SHIN:  symmetrically  placed  on  the  knee  and  the  shin  bone,  or  biased  slightly  to  the outside of the leg, from about 10 cm above the knee to as close to the ankle as it is practical to wear the protector with a boot. Insert into the lining pocket and use the Velcro fastening to secure the  protector  in  the  most  comfortable  position  when  riding  the
  • Please refer  also  to  the  instructions  for  use  supplied  by  the  impact  protector    Only impact protectors conforming to the requirements of EN 1621-1:2012 should be used. Note: impact protectors must be removed when the garment is cleaned, to prevent damage to the impact foam’s structure.

USE WITH ADDITIONAL PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
To  achieve  the  maximum  available  levels  of  protection  in  the  event  of  an  accident,  this  garment should be used in conjunction with compatible, correctly fitting items of PPE which give coverage to areas of the body  not protected by this garment alone  – i.e.: a total PPE package should be used, comprising helmet, gloves, boots; and jacket & trousers or one-piece/two-piece suit.
This garment is designed to be worn with the following, additional PPE:
  • Motorcycle safety helmet, with fitted or separate eye protection (relevant standards include: DOT, ECE 22.05 and Snell M2000).
  • Jacket made from leather or other materials with equivalent properties (relevant standards include prEN 17092 Parts 1 – 6 :2017 (February 2017), the French Protocol and EN 13595). It is advised that separate  jackets  and  trousers  should  have  sufficient  overlap,  when  the  wearer  is  in  the  riding position.
  • Gloves made of leather or material with equivalent properties, worn inside or outside the cuff of the garment and extending from the wrist joint up the wearer’s arms for a distance of not less than 50mm (relevant standard: EN 13594).
  • Tall boots made of leather or material with equivalent properties, worn inside or outside the ankles of  PPE  providing  protection  to  the  lower  limbs  to  a  point  not  lower  than  the  mid-calf  point  of  the wearer (relevant standard: EN 13634) are required to be worn with garments approved to prEN 17092Parts 2, 3 and 4:2017.
USE IN ADVERSE CLIMATIC CONDITIONS
In conditions  of cold  and/or wet  weather,  it is  advised that this garment be  worn  with the following items:
  • A thin under garment of insulating material affording protection from cold weather for the wearer;
  • For conspicuity in conditions of reduced visibility, where high visibility materials and components are  not  an  integral  part  of  the  garment;  additional  high-visibility  clothing  or  accessories  (relevant standards include: EN ISO 20471, EN1150, EN 13356).
IMPORTANT NOTICES
  • This item of motorcyclists’ PPE will only provide the maximum available levels of protection when the recommended standard fitment impact protectors (see “IMPACT PROTECTORS”) are fitted and  positioned  in  accordance  with  the  instructions    The jeans  must  not  be  worn  when riding a motorcycle without the  impact protectors fitted. If replacing the impact protectors fitted to your garment , only use the same models of D3O protectors which are fitted as standard.
  • The main closures and restraint mechanisms of this garment should always be securely fastened when in use whilst riding a motorcycle or this garment’s ability to provide protection in the event of an accident may be severely reduced. Never ride with main closures open during hot weather.
  • If the environmental conditions render this garment excessively and distractingly uncomfortable, a more appropriate protective garment should be worn whilst riding, or other methods of reducing the effects of heat stress employed. Further advice can be obtained from the manufacturer or supplier.
  • It is advised that solid objects should not be stored in the pockets of this garment whilst the user is riding a motorcycle, as in the event of an accident such objects may cause injury.
  • The manufacturer shall be absolved of all liability arising from injury, howsoever caused, where the garment or its components have been modified, replaced or removed.

Performance levels defined in FprEN 17092-1:2018 (February 2019) Provisional European Standard FprEN  17092-1:2018 (February 2019) defines five classifications of motorcyclists’ clothing these are

  • FprEN 17092-2:2019 (February 2019)— Class AAA garments.  The  highest  level  of  protection, against  the  highest  level  of    Some common examples are:  one-piece or two-piece suits. These garments are likely to have severe and limiting ergonomic, weight and thermal penalties, which some riders will not find acceptable for their specific riding activities.
  • FprEN 17092-3:2019 (February 2019) — Class AA garments.  The second highest level of protection, against the risks of the greatest diversity of riding activities. Some common examples  are:  garments  designed  to  be  worn  by  themselves  or  to  be  worn  over  other    These garments are expected to have lower ergonomic and weight penalties than Class AAA garments and some riders will not find these penalties acceptable for their specific riding activities.
  • FprEN 17092-4:2019 (February 2019) — Class A garments. The third highest level of protection. Some common examples are: garments, designed to be worn by them self or to be worn over other clothing by riders in extremely hot environments. Class A garments are expected to have the least ergonomic and weight penalties.
  • FprEN 17092-5:2019 (February 2019) — Class B garments. This class is for specialized garments, designed to provide the equivalent abrasion protection of Class A garments but without the inclusion of impact protectors. Some common examples are: modular garments suitable to be combined with other garments providing impact protection. Class B garments do not offer impact protection and it is recommended that they be worn with, at least, EN 1621-1 shoulder and elbow impact protectors, in the case of a jacket, or EN 1621-1 knee impact protectors, in the case of trousers, installed in the garment, if it is designed to accept them or in another form, in order to offer complete minimum protection.
  • FprEN 17092-6:2019 (February 2019) — Class C garments. This class is for specialized non-shell garments, designed  only  to  hold  one  or  more  impact  protectors  in  place,  either  as  an undergarment  or  as  an  over-garment.  Class C garments are designed to provide impact protection for areas covered by the impact protector(s) and they do not offer complete minimum abrasion and impact protection.

 

The official pictogram (see examples) denotes the overall classification achieved by the garment and number and year of the standard.

Construction of this product

This  garment  is  constructed  from  materials  which  are  abrasion,  tear  and  burst  resistant.  No substances known to be harmful to human health have been used in the construction of this garment.

Protection provided by this garment

This clothing is designed to combat the hazards encountered during normal riding on a motorcycle and when the rider is involved in a road traffic accident. The clothing is designed and constructed so that it should remain in place on the wearer, and reasonably intact on impact with the road surface;

thus  it  should  usually  prevent  any  skin  contact  with  the  road  and  therefore  minimise  mechanical impact  injuries  to  the  rider.  This clothing cannot provide protection from more serious injuries, although it may assist in reducing the severity of some such injuries.

Hazards against which some protection is provided

  • Reduction in the severity of contusions and fractures, with the prevention of some fractures and joint damage.
  • Prevention of most laceration and abrasion injuries that occur when a rider slides on the road surface after falling off.
  • Reduction in the severity (or prevention) of muscle stripping and degloving injuries to the lower leg.
  • Likely prevention of contamination of open fractures by road dirt.

Hazards against which this garment cannot provide protection

  • Massive penetrating injuries on parts of the body.
  • High energy impacts on the chest or abdomen, and severe bending forces such as when the torso impacts may be against soft or hard ground, or objects such as trees, vehicles, posts or rails
  • Severe bending,  crushing  and  torsional  forces  which  occur  if the  leg  becomes  trapped between the motorcycle and another vehicles.
  • Strikes against stationary objects.

 

Whilst certain types and levels of accident protection can be provided by clothing, protection against all hazards is impossible.

 

Note: The degree of risk or hazard that a motorcyclist will face is closely linked to the type of riding and the nature of the accident.  Riders are cautioned to carefully choose motorcyclists’ protective garments that match their riding activity and risks. Other garments or garment combinations certified according to the series of standards FprEN  17092 Parts 1 – 6:2019 (February 2019) may provide more appropriate protection than this garment but there may be weight or ergonomic (e.g. range of motion restrictions) or heat stress penalties associated with their use, that may be unacceptable for some riders. So far as possible, design and construction to prevent road impact injury takes precedence over other requirements, unless this would, in itself, lead to an increased risk of an accident.

Using this garment for the first time

In order to benefit fully from the protection offered by these garments, you should ensure that it fits according to the following criteria:

 

  • That the main fly zip closure is securely fastened and the stirrups are placed under the foot. It should not be possible to pull the ankles of the jeans up the lower legs by more than 10 (ten)centimetres. A greater movement may expose skin to abrasion in an accident. If it is not possible to obtain a secure fit, an alternative size of jeans may be required.
  • That no discomfort is caused by the jeans when in the normal, usual riding position adopted by the wearer, and that you are able to easily reach and operate the controls of your motorcycle. (Please note, however, that you should allow at least 10 hours of regular wear for the jeans to “break in”  and  become  fully  comfortable,  and  this  should  be  taken  into  account  when  first assessing the fit of your motorcyclists’ PPE.)
  • There should  not  be  additional,  excessive  surplus  of  material  –  the  garment  fitting  snugly  yet comfortably  over  the  clothing  normally  chosen  for  wear  under  motorcycling    This would normally be one or two thin, insulating or perspiration-wicking layers as required.
